In a viral social media video, a man can be seen fearlessly catching a snake with his bare hands. The video that is being extensively shared on social media showcases a three and a half minute long tussle between the man and a terrifying snake that dugs itself deeper into the ground as the man tries to get a grip of the reptile.
In the video, the snake is seen camouflaging with sand, with half of its body hidden inside a hole in the ground. The man in his mission to catch the snake dugs deeper into the sand, while onlookers stand at a safe distance. The man pulls the snake out of the hole by his tail and lays him flat on the ground, while it tries to sting him back. At the end of the battle as the snake gave in, the man trapped the reptile in a plastic jar.
The video, which sparked the worst nightmare of many, was shared on Facebook on Saturday and has been widely circulated since.

An unarmed battle with a venomous reptile is not advised to anyone who thinks they are brave enough to take it one on one. Snakes are known for their speed and poisonous nature. Thus, a brave encounter with one is not advised until a person is skilled in dealing with snakes.
